Also known as a surf robe or surf poncho - you can use it for all your salty activities!

Made from 100% (350g) cotton towelling in the EU. Machine washable and built to last. 

One Size
Measurement from armpit to armpit: 85cm. 
Measurement from centre of the back of neck to hem: 108cm. 

We looked for the biggest and best quality towelling robes available. They had to be be built to last with great coverage and ethical manufacturing. We found Booicore.  Booicore was created by a windsurfer frustrated with the lack of quality changing towel options and his wife with a background in garment manufacturing. They create high quality, durable products with the user at the heart of the design. A much more sustainable and less polluting option than a micro-fibre towel which add to plastic pollution whenever washed. Another plastic pollution solution and we love them! Better for the environment and better for you. Which colour will you choose? Satanic Red or Gandalf Grey....?

Comes in a reusable cotton drawstring bag with Booicore sticker. 

Every purchase helps get more people into the sea. At Seabirds in Brighton we are keen sea swimmers ourselves.

They use the sea for well being therapy tackling mental health issues faced by vulnerable young people. Salted well being.

Game changer;)

Game changing piece of kit. no more struggling with a towel, I can just throw this on over my head easily (good news when swimming in the sea in the winter!!!) dry off and get changed underneath. Dries quickly and easy to throw in washing machine

If you want to flash you can, but no need with this robe!

Struggle no more with the complicated dance of changing in a towel and trying to avoid flashing at the tourists (the locals are used to it)!

I love my towelling robe as it keeps me warm and soon dry whilst having plenty of room to change in. The sleeves are longer so no large slits in the side that one still inevitably flashes through, and it has a lovely large pocket at the front that you can stick your hot water bottle in if necessary.

I absolutely love my bright blue one and gave my Mum the amazing pink fuscia one as a gift, which she also loves.

I definitely recommend this as part of the swimmers kit.

Brilliant towelling robe!

So delighted with this purchase. It keeps me really warm and all my bits out of view when changing on the beach. Washes well too.

Great size thanks - a very welcome Birthday present :)

I bought this snuggly robe for my mother in law who is a seabird elsewhere. She can’t recommend it highly enough. It is long so maintains her dignity while changing, and very warm so maintains her core temperature while getting changed after her swim. A great purchase!

This mu-mu (robe!) is so blooming warm and comfy, it's a struggle not to wear it at home all day. It's a great size and makes changing on the beach far more dignified. The towelling is really soft and is genuinely a pleasure to get into after a swim. It's the warm hug I need before I get the hot caffeine in me! Dogs definitely recommend to sea swimmers and those who love comfy lounge wear.

Christine - Brighton

So glad I got this - feeling less self-conscious getting changed has enabled me to swim more this summer. Great size and quality
